WSM I is the first step on this journey through the Spirit's Edge Mystery School. It is the first year in a five-degree system of Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick (WSM) training in the Spirit’s Edge Mystery School, corresponding to the five degrees in the Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple & Tradition. Our teacher is High Preistess and Founder Kassia S. Morgan, who personally serves as the apprenticeship mentor for each student in the Mystery School. Kassia's goal, depending on the level of interest each year, is to offer subsequent classes for each of the four to five levels for those starting this year in WSM I or continuing this year in other levels.
The Spirit's Edge Mystery School is an inner development and soul growth school, guiding the individual through intensive independent self-study and direct mentoring by the teacher, fitting the boutique nature of our school, through the secret class page and monthly homework submissions. Throughout the Mystery School journey, the student will seek partnership with their Shadow Self and seek to merge with their Higher Self. The Great Work of this program is geared to guide the individual as they seek to integrate their own soul lessons, develop awareness and a higher state of consciousness/higher vibration, centered in the Heart, anchored in Divine Love and Light. This school provides the vehicle for the student to integrate their spiritual development into their own practice and life – merging the three aspects of the soul as one and embodying the Great Work of the soul.
Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick I is not like most introductory courses and is not centered on casting spells. Rather, it is a spiritual approach that will provide the deep foundation needed to build a powerful and effective magickal practice. You will learn easy but powerful relaxation techniques, develop your psychic skills, learn how to shift consciousness and tap into your full potential, discover synchronicities and messages from Spirit, how to create a simple sacred space to begin your inner work, how to work with energy, astral travel, cleanse your aura and balance your chakras. You will also learn about psychic self-defense, psychic healing, spirit guide contact and many more powerful techniques.
Intensive homework will be required in an independent study format. Some exercises require magickal timing and also ingredients/tools, so when you receive your lesson syllabus each month, please be sure to plan out your month to ensure you have the timing and the items you need to complete the exercises.
There will be an online group component. Class instruction will be provided via monthly online pre-recorded video format, written lessons (handouts and syllabus) and photos. You will have access to videos while you are enrolled in the Mystery School. This is a one-year apprenticeship, and classes cannot be individually taken. Class will culminate in your personal Year & A Day Initiation Ritual to mark your completion of Witchcraft, Shamanism & Magick I. Please note that ultimately no one can make you a Witch, a Shaman or a Mage – it is between your Higher Self and the Gods.
First "virtual" class is March 1, 2023 with Lesson 1. Last lesson begins on Feb. 1, 2024. The final lesson, Lesson 13, A Year & A Day Initiation Ritual and any remaining class submissions are due by March 1, 2024.
Course investment is $360 paid in advance for the full year of 12 classes.
Payment schedules may be arranged on a case by case basis, are based on financial need and are not automatically approved. The payment schedule fee, if approved for the payment plan, will be a $75 deposit with your application, followed by $30 due by the first of each month starting April 1, 2023, with last payment due February 1, 2024. See details in the application; the total paid over the year in the payment plan will be higher than upfront payment in full.
Certificates of completion will be emailed after final homework and ritual experience is submitted and upon receipt of final payment. Each class builds on the other, so this is a year-long series/ apprenticeship.

We have much to celebrate as Spirit’s Edge and as a Mystery School!! Spirit’s Edge is a spiritual organization, born on Jan. 1, 2010 in a working by my coven. Our first quasi-public ritual was held May 2012. Our community called Spirit’s Edge: A Seeker’s Salon was founded on Hekate’s Feast Day Aug. 13, 2012. Soon after, at Mabon 2012, Spirit’s Edge started its ongoing, continuous run of public sabbat rituals. Our Mystery School was announced June 2013, and our first WSM I & II classes began November 2013. For several years, we had two sections of WSM I as well. Spirit’s Edge took its full name of Spirit’s Edge Shamonial Temple in February 2014.
In Love & Light,
